Increasing use of Zinc in the treatment of pediatric diarrhea in Benin
In 2008, USAID introduced a diarrhea treatment kit with zinc and ORS in Benin through private sector channels. After only three years of program implementation, the majority of caregivers reported treating with zinc, but the use of antibiotics also increased. This presentation discusses the program's successes and continuing challenges. The presentation was given at USAID by Emily Sanders and Vicki MacDonald in January 2014.
